    Is the syncing frequency the same from Breeze --> External Calendar (Google)? Such as, when I update an event on Breeze ChMS, does the event get updated in my Google Calendar. I do not see such behavior.

    Hey Patrick,

    It sounds like you're thinking about this correctly. If you have Google Calendar pulling in your Breeze calendar data, updates made to your Breeze calendar should show up in Google Calendar within 24 hours if not sooner.

    (In this scenario, Google controls how often it fetches data from Breeze, according to the chart above that you mentioned.)

    If you're not seeing this to be true on your account, we'd be happy to help with your account more specifically.  Just reach out to our support team using this link:

    Hi, I'm wondering if it is possible to use external calendar events as events in Breeze so I can take attendance. I'd like to not recreate my calendars in Breeze just to take attendance.

    Hey there - Unfortunately when you bring an external calendar into Breeze it's strictly a "read-only" type calendar which means it can't be edited or have attendance added to it. Apologies for that, that is, unfortunately, something that we can't control. Again, sorry about that - I know it's very inconvenient sometimes to have to re-create a bunch of calendars.  

    One suggestion would be to use the Import Attendance tool.  This will allow you to bulk import attendance, and, if an event doesn't already exist in your calendar, it will create an event for you!

    I have added my Breeze calendar events to our Google calendar, however the times of the events are not right on the Google Side.  In Breeze, I have our Sunday Morning Service entered as 10 am but it shows as 9 am on our Google calendar.  Is there some setting I need to change in either Breeze or Google for daylight savings time or do I have a time zone discrepancy?  I just added the breeze calendar to my google calendar a few hours ago.  Is it possibly a sync issue?  Thanks!

    Hi @messiahreseau!

    That could very well be a Google syncing error! Google doesn't seem to publish their syncing frequency; but we know based on user testing, it seems the frequency is somewhere between "every few hours" and at least once every 24 hours. Have you noticed it syncing up since you posted here a few days ago? Feel free to reach out to us directly if it's still not syncing and we can dig in further!

    Can I export calendars from breeze to an ics file? I want to import them into our Cloversites website.

    Thanks for the help.
